follow focus gear and motor. The trick will be mounting the motor...

It's also possible in post to animate a blur mask but not quite the same as true dof.

If you are after something along these lines

then try Breeze DSLR remote software, you can get a 15day Canon/Nikon or August free trial for Canon at their web site.

I've seen it done sucessfully by hand but I would not recommend that.

The close-ups of the car rig on the 2 vids below were done with a fairly simple motorised follow focus unit.
